This Year's Project: Sweet Dreams Bed Ministry

About Our Organization

First Presbyterian Church has a banner over the door as people leave worship. It reads, "The worship is over. Let the service begin." Sweet Dreams Bed Ministry is one of the ways we try to be the hands and feet of Jesus in Beatrice. We also maintain a Little Pantry by our church on the corner of 5th and HIgh. We have had a church on this site since March 17, 1869. We invite you to join us on Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. for worship and then be a part of the service throughout the week.

Current Project: Sweet Dreams Bed Ministry

For years, we have heard about the heartbreak of children going to bed hungry and many of us have responded. The congregation at First Presbyterian Church always assumed that once these children were fed they went to a bed like our children did. Because of personal experiences and from speaking to people at Blue Valley Community Action and others we no longer believe this is the case. Some of these children do not have a bed and some even find themselves sleeping on the floor and because of this we began Sweet Dreams Bed Ministry in 2020.

Each child that is approved  receives a new mattress, box springs and frame.  In addition, the bed  comes with new sheets, a comforter, a new pillow, a mattress pad and a blanket. The first few beds were paid out of the money that was still in the 150th Celebration account and was the congregation’s gift to the community.

Interestingly, a Presbyterian Church in Monroe, Michigan, has been doing this since 2001.  The coordinator said he has seen children go to bed at 4:30 in the afternoon because they are so excited about having their own bed.

Applications for beds can be found at Blue Valley Community Action, Community Food Pantry, Mother to Mother Ministry and Salvation Army or on our website, www.presbybeatrice.com.

Since beginning the program we have provided 29 children with their own bed and with your help, we will be able to provide even more children with their own bed.
